The consensus topic seems to be that Miles doesn't do enough with the players he has. Its as if Miles is just given the recruits and gets ZERO credit for them. I agree our offense has problems and needs to change.But lets not act like he's Zook or Orgeron that does absolutely nothing with the talent they brought in.
I've always been on the train of thought that LSU has great talent, but it isn't like we are an NFL team and everyone else is playing with HS kids.
Most people that don't like Miles and think he vastly underachieves do so because they vastly OVERestimate our talent advantage over everyone else.
Hell, just look at the recruiting rankings. Have we EVER had a #1 class???
I know rankings aren't perfect, and of course we recruit as well as anyone, but it's pretty clear teams like Bama, Florida, Texas, OU, FSU, USC, Oregon, Ohio State, and Georgia recruit AT LEAST as well as we do, and we win more than all of them do except Bam-ulligan.
And programs like Auburn, A&M, Tenn, USCe, Clemson, Michigan, Ole Miss aren't that far behind us.
Football is a fricking competitive sport, and the best team doesn't always win. This is true at every single level in every single sport.
Teams don't have to have the same level of talent or coaching to win on any given day, and just because the favorite doesn't win over cover the spread it doesn't mean the coaches suck or the players weren't prepared.
Sometimes things don't according to plan.
THAT'S WHY THEY PLAY THE DAMN GAMES.
